:target CSS pseudo-class

This is a interesting one. :target will select and element or div that has the same ID as the URL's hash. So if you have a div with the ID of haber-dasher and you have an anchor with the href="#haber-dasher then when you click the link and add #haber-dasher to the end of the URl like the class :target will add blue to the h2 like this.

h2:target {
color: blue;
